I had some leftover quilt squares and fabric from making the quilt for the day bed and the window valance which inspired the whole room. So I am finally getting around to making pillow cases to match. They are also quilted on the front. I pieced the front, added some leftover batting and cut up an old sheet for the backing. This was all quilted together with the same twin needle technique I used on the quilt. Then I added the backing fabric and sewed it all together. Now all we need to do is cover the headboard and mount it on the wall.
Twin needle quilting is not traditional, but it looks great! I think it adds a professional level to the front. On the back, the bobbin creates a zigzag effect, which some don’t like. For my modern quilt with a (boring) solid background, I appreciate the texture it adds.
The beginning steps of piecing the squares together. Makes a cute garland.
Finally finished the quilt!
The quilt is almost done. I am hand stitching the binding on and it will be ready for sleeping. I’ll post another photo of it in the room soon.
After finishing my books, I can now get back to working on the quilt. The borders are done!
The quilt top is almost done. I still need to add the boarders.
aren’t the birdies so cute! The fabric I picked has so many great elements and colors, which makes it really fun to work with.
